Question Description
I am intending to study in Canada and I need the name of the schools and universities which have the lowest tuition fees in Canada. I want to know about the list of universities and colleges with the tuition fee ranging from about $1700 to $2000. Please try listing the cheapest universities. Thanks.

Even though Canadian universities have very low tuition fee for international students, I don’t think there’s any university that has tuition fee as low as you’ve mentioned. But the tuition fee can come down if the university offers you some scholarships based on your merits. I have mentioned the names of some universities below which have quite a low tuition fee for international students:

Memorial University
University of Saskatchewan
University of Northern BC
University of Regina
Simon Fraser University
Univeristy of British Columbia
Brandon University
University of PEI
University of Guelph
University of Victoria
University of Alberta
York University
University of Manitoba
Brock University
Carleton University
Wilfrid Laurier University
Laurentian University
Université d’Ottawa
University of New Brunswick
Lakehead University
Université Laval
University of Windsor
University of Waterloo
Queen's University
Concordia University
McGill University
Université de Montréal
École Polytechnique
University of Calgary
Nipissing University
University of Western Ontario
McMaster University
St. Francis Xavier University
Trent University
Mount Saint Vincent University
Dalhousie University
University of Toronto
Ryerson University
University College of Cape Breton

I hope this list helps. You may visit the respective university websites to check the tuition fee there for international students.

The tuition fees in Canadian universities vary based upon the nationality of student – Canadian or International, rank and location of universities, level of studies, major chosen by the student, subsidies provided by the provincial government, etc. In general, studying in Canadian institutions is not cheap for the international students unless they get good scholarships. This is because provincial governments in Canada do not provide subsidized tuition fees to the international students as for their own residents.

I do not know any universities with the tuition fee as low as you have expected it to be. Also, I do not recommend you to choose universities only based on the tuition fees. First of all, intent must be clear. If you really wish to get good education that can change your life, you have to choose best university for you. You may have faced some financial difficulties to finance your education. But that doesn't mean you have to choose cheap universities which do not provide good education.

My suggestion to you would be to choose universities based on which field you want to specialize on. Most of the Canadian universities offer almost all courses, but they specialize in specific fields. You can short-list the list of universities according to your requirement of specialization. After that, you can look the best and cheapest among those universities. Genuine students with financial difficulties do not need to panic a lot in my view. Universities around the world are looking for the good universities. You can write to the admission department of university stating your problems of financing your education and chances of getting scholarships, financial aids, or student loan in their university.

Let me know on which field you want to specialize, then I will try to find the appropriate university for you.
